Tais Nøhr Larsen’s review published on Letterboxd:
This is in the same category as Starship Troopers and The Mummy. A crazy B-movie that takes itself seriously while being objectively bad and yet quite entertaining. I don't know why people seem to agree that the first two ones are fun while Van Helsing is bad.
I loved the film as a kid and decided yo watch it again, prepared to be let down. I didn't. It's not art and it's certainly not a good movie. It's crazy fun and entertaining though. Every actor in it tries way too hard in a kitch kinda way and it doesn't get silly or selfconscious so we're allowed to make fun of it ourselves.
